The God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory..The birds of heaven hath he given into thine hand.....Thou art this head of gold...Daniel 2: 37-38

I shot this image through our old rolled glass window pane this morning behind the kitchen sink, of the male American Goldfinch. He happened to turn and ruffle his head just before he left the feeder...It is challenging to say the least to focus through rolled glass which distorts and often softens the picture, if it is shot at a distance. Since the bird was right next to the window, I got a half way decent picture through using my manual focus settings and this is right from the camera without editing ... Although the rolled glass gives it a bit of a water color look to it and acts as a filter...

    Your old rolled glass does act like a filter and makes your photos look so nice. You got an excellent shot of this male American Goldfinch!!!

    You really make me miss my birds. I can't put up my feeders because of the stray and feral cats here. This is such a wonderful shot.
